Nephrology Fellowship Program

The Johns Hopkins Nephrology Fellowship Training Program is one of the nation’s premier training programs in academic and clinical nephrology. The program produces clinically outstanding nephrologists, internationally recognized clinical and basic scientists, and innovative medical educators. 

Program Overview

The Johns Hopkins Nephrology Fellowship Program is overseen by the Office of Graduate Medical Education at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. Rotations occur predominantly at the Johns Hopkins Hospital and the Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center. 

The program requires at least 2 years of training in one of three tracks:

  • Basic science research
  • Clinical/epidemiological research
  • Clinical education

The first year is dedicated to clinical training through inpatient consultation services, inpatient renal transplantation service, weekly outpatient continuity clinic, kidney biopsy and temporary hemodialysis access placement, POCUS training and several elective opportunities. The second and optional third year are designed to further develop and hone clinical, educational and research skills with an emphasis guided by the fellow’s career goals.
